Are you familiar with rehabman's Guide? Follow It as writen and you should succeed.

This particular model is not officialy supported, but I used 8x0 files and it is working very well.

Give It a try
Sorry, a bit lost.. where did found files for 8x0? Can you share a link?

It's ALL in the first post. If it's your First hackintosh, It's natural to be a bit Lost.

To start, you need access to a real Mac or a working hackintosh and download osx installer. Then follow the guide to make the USB thumb drive to boot the installer

With default config.plist can boot and setup in safe mode, but with this one(https://raw.githubusercontent.com/R...fig/master/config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist) it seems in boot loop.
Verbose mode shows some two (something about IOCatalogue) lines blinking on top of screen..

By the way, Im installing 10.13.6

upd1: default with just -disablegfxfirmware doesnt work either.
Stick to the guide. Read carefully How to make the USB installer and then the post install steps.

The efi folder of the installer has to be exactly as per guide, so you can boot with the proper config.plist

Shortcut: look at the EFI folder of the PR files I uploaded recently, should give you a headstart. But ideally you should understand how to make your EFI folder so you can do a basic troubleshoot.

I ran it that way for a bit (with Sierra HD3000 kexts), but it doesn't work well, so I reverted to 10.13.x.
Thanks for reminding me to fix my signature.

Thanks for writing this guide!
My laptop is HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 with NGFF/M.2 WiFi slot. The WiFi card saller told me that my laptop has BIOS whitelist, and I cant use BCM94352Z, but I doubt about it. Do I have to flash my BIOS to change WiFi card? Or how can i finger it out?

Hey! Sorry if it's stupid question, but I can't find any information about Synaptics touchpad working on Mojave 10.14... Everything works on my EliteBook 8570p except my touchpad. It was working on Sierra 10.12. and I tried to install the same kext files for the touchpad, but the only success I get is to make it work to some point where it works, but very fast and there are no options to tweak to make it slower :( Is there any workaround on this issue? Thank you!
